San Francisco Swing Dress

More pattern testing! I recently got to test out Caroline Hulse of Sew Caroline's newest pattern, the San Francisco Swing Top & Dress, available today. 
Ally was the lucky recipient of two dresses. She loves to wear little knit swing dresses & this pattern fit the bill.
The pattern calls for knit with at least 40% stretch. I did see that one tester made the top out of a woven and was happy with the result. My dresses are both knits. This one is a blend, cotton/spandex and the blue one below is cotton interlock. It's a quick make, front, back, neckband and sleeve bands and easy to assemble. The high neck is very cute & easy to do.

I made the dress version. The top also has an option for a split back, which is adorable. 

I'll be making more of these for sure! Had a great time testing it out for Caroline.

These are super cute and look very comfortable! Plus, they cold easily transition to cold weather (if you all get cold weather?} with leggings and a cardi.
